Too busy, and there are two black guys that annoyingly put their commercial right in the face. Daiso is big but crowdy, of course, the only reason I would go there again is Liz Liza (which I can get also at Shibuya 109) and Okonomiyaki cafe. The rest really can be obtained elsewhere much easily)

Right when you exit Harajuku Station, cross the street and turn left. A few feet down, you will find Takeshita Street. There are many cheap places to eat here, a great shopping experience, and a great view of the unique and colorful fashion.
There are many Purikura shops in this area, but they are in the basement floors, so keep an eye out for those if you want to try it. While walking down Takeshita Street, don't forget to look at the empty alleys also. There are actually smaller shops down there and some have great deals! For example, the animal stockings that are usually $12 in America are only about 300 yen there. I especially love the Daiso store because they got such a great selection on things. Also, who doesn't love cheap but quality goods?
If you find yourself in need of a bathroom as you explore, there's a giant Mc Donald's on this street that has a bathroom when you go down to the basement floor. I can't say there won't be lines though.

Go during the weekdays to avoid the crowds and behind the famous crepe store is actually a shrine dedicated to the late Admiral Togo Heihachirou which is open for visits. Other than that, Harajuku can also be called "the mecca of Japanese Streetwear" with big brands like Supreme, Bape, Billionaire Boys Club and many vintage stores that offer fashion at a more affordable price.

For sneakerheads, shops like Undefeated, Kicks Lab, Limited Edt offers a wide selection of sneakers and the Nike flagship store here is one of the biggest I have seen and offers sneakers from Air Maxes to Jordans which will leave any sneakerheads in awe. Finally, just beside this street is the more up-class Omotesando Hills where one can find brands like Comme de Garcons (CDG).

小路(ブラームスの小徑)

這是一條不起眼的小道,它是涉谷繁華大都市裡的一處靜謐的小道。首先JR原宿「竹下口」出來,穿過竹下口,在百元店的反方向就是小道的入口。左邊種植著幾棵樹,右邊是幾個民居,這條路平常很少人通過。在喧囂的涉谷能找到這樣一條路是很少見的。 **交通方式** - JR原宿站徒步4分Read more
